Monegasque painter Claude Gauthier, known for vivid colours and a retro pictorial style, is now exhibiting at the Auditorium Rainier III.
The artist’s exhibition, organised by the Department of Cultural Affairs, will run from 31st October to 17th November, giving admirers old and new a chance to see first-hand the Order of Monegasque Culture recipient’s paintings, including those from some of his latest efforts entitled Au fils du temps.
His oeuvre depicts scenes from the Principality, the Côte d’Azur and many of the places he has travelled, often inspired by actual news events and offering a unique perspective on the annual events happening in and around Monaco such as the Circus Festival and the land extension project.
The artist began painting in 1965 and his subsequent renditions come in an enormous range of sizes, from huge wall hangings to tiny postcards, showing a range not often seen and many of his artworks are on permanent display at the Musée d’Art Naïf in Nice.
Doors are open from 2pm to 7pm daily.
